I would absolutely buy that. He'd have to come with all of his guns though and the mask would have to be removable. Would be fucking awesome.

I think having him mostly alone helped. He doesn't clash with the more subdued style of the others. If things go as they seem and he spends time with Capone next year it will be fucking glorious.
OMG. I was just watching this week's episode of a great UK comedy quiz show 8 Out Of 10 Cats. One of the guest panelists was Boardwalk Empire's Capone, Stephen Graham.
He's from Liverpool.
I had the same reaction when I watched an interview with Jack Huston about the role of Richard Harrow. "Where's his American accent....?"
That kind of explains why I found his italian accent so overbearing. I liked this guy when he was the grumpy Irish pal of DiCpario in Gangs of New York, but his Capone has always felt like a put on to me. I did like the scenes with the deaf kid though, those glimpses of home life are the only aspect of the character that has worked for me so far.
BLACK HAWK DOWN is even worse in that regard. 3/4 of that "American" cast is . . . not.
Haven't you seen Snatch ?!
yeah, like 13 yrs ago when it came out. what's yer point?
these guys are actors, and part of that is the talent to 'do' accents from other countries.
Some can do it, others fail miserably ---Val Kilmer in Dr. Moreau comes to mind.
I just was surprised at the 'real' Stephen Graham, that's all....
My point being if you remembered him in Snatch, that you'd know he's British.
Anyway, I rewatched Darrow killing everyone because I thought the count was off. We see him shoot 10 different guys, yet the NY guys had just left and we were told earlier in the ep that Gyp only had 9 of his own - and there are 3 left for Gyp's final scene on the beach.
